MAN AT V&A

This summer's exhibition of photographs and films by Paul Strand at the V&A has been on my Evernote list for a while but I just managed to fit in a visit there yesterday afternoon.  I went in through the entrance in the long underpass from South Kensington station as there's always something interesting (I think) to photograph there.  Strand was a pioneer of fine art photography and for much of his life used large format cameras to capture people and landscapes in small communities around the world. For me his stand out series is of South Uist in the Outer Hebrides in the 1950s, but perhaps I'm biased.  The exhibition finishes on Sunday so you now have only two days left to do the Strand, so to speak.
